Building Inspections

Permits are required for all electrical, mechanical, and plumbing projects.  Permits are also required for a variety of improvements projects, including but not limited to reroofs, window changes, fences, pools and spas, remodels, and additions.  If in doubt, please call the Building Department at (626) 300-0712 to determine if your proposed project requires a permit.

Register through ContractorConnect to apply for certain permits online.  Permits for roofing, electrical, and plumbing are the only permits authorized to be issued online.  Contractors are encouraged to begin the application process online.  Registering through ContractorConnect allows for the contractor and owner to stay up-to-date on the status of the permit, schedule inspections and view results of the inspection.  Applications for permits that require planning review and/or plan check will be accepted online, but require hard copy submission of the plans at the public counter prior to proceeding.  

To request a copy of the permit history for a property, please contact the City Clerk, to submit your request.
